★★ Watched 14 Jul, 2014
Initially promising with some creepy bits, but gradually buried under a deluge of 'scares' when it was crying out for some space to expand into. Shit, shit, SHIT ending, too.

Not really very good at all. A mess of cliches that detract from the central message, which might have been a powerful one. And the panther - the panther!
★★★½ Watched 27 May, 2014
So much talent on display and so well judged in terms of run time that it's odd how much it drags. Promising, though.
★★½ Watched 23 May, 2014
Diverting enough, but destined for the same 'hangover viewing' shitheap as Van Helsing and Underworld. Nice and nasty in places but the script is awful and it has one of the worst end of level baddies ever.
★★★★ Watched 24 Mar, 2014
This walked a fine line but it was good to see a film of this ilk actually *earn* the right to explore the themes it did.
★★★ Watched 06 Feb, 2014
Supremely silly, but the time ah, flew by.
★★ Watched 07 Sep, 2013
Heh. What a load of old shit. Especially Brendon Gleeson's accent. And his fringe.
★★½ Watched 27 Mar, 2013
Why do I wait so long to see films?
★★★★ Watched 28 Feb, 2013
An easy film to 'own' in many respects, as we've all known people like Joyce, and because it makes you immediately seek out those you love and hold onto them with a new kind of ferocity.
★★★½ Watched 14 Nov, 2012
I hate ratings - I've given Rocky III 3.5 stars, too, and these might as well be on different planets.
★★½ Watched 20 Oct, 2012
Like most Wes Anderson stuff, this kind of wore me out. Need to see it again to be sure just how much this one exhausted me.
★★★ Watched 20 Oct, 2012
Fine as plane fodder.
